What is SASS Global Travel?
SASS Global Travel (SGT) was launched to revolutionize adventure travel worldwide. With an industry-leading sustainable travel vision, SGT offers exceptional trip opportunities to clients as they surf, ski, dive and ride in some of the most extraordinary destinations on Earth. With a core set of principles that go far beyond traditional tour operators — including cultural immersion, personal development, and physical well-being, SASS Global Travel creates transcendent life experiences that are far more than a vacation.
Today, SASS Global Travel is bringing one-of-a-kind trips to some of the most remote corners of the planet. Skiing and riding destinations include Bariloche, Argentina and Niseko, Japan – offering incredible powder snow conditions in both the North American Winter and Summer seasons. Year-round surf and dive destinations currently include Rincon, Puerto Rico and Cabarete in the Dominican Republic. This season, SGT is also offering an incomparable surf experience in San Juan del Sur, Nicaragua. Over the years, SGT has formed partnerships with industry leaders in adventure travel who are willing to provide a level of excellence in guiding service that’s completely unparalleled in today’s travel industry. This is all done while providing outstanding value to clients, and with a steadfast commitment to both environmental stewardship and the communities in which we operate.

What does the SGT Affiliate Program offer me?
The SGT Online B2B Affiliate Program is a way to offer your visitors access to a growing portfolio of the best action sports and adventure travel options on the market today. Best of all, varying levels of partnership make the affiliate program possible and profitable for a wide variety of websites.
Is this Commission Based? Pay-Per-Click? Impressions?
It depends on the affiliate. Most of our partners find our travel products extremely attractive at the affiliate level. For this reason, successful websites that already share an action sports or adventure travel negotiate a commission-based compensation model. PPC campaigns can be explored with website owners that can demonstrate past success in travel. Community websites or affiliate-only websites may work on a referral fee. We’re not actively seeking traditional online advertising opportunities (banner ad impressions, etc.). We will however consider link exchanges and other unpaid cross-promotion.
Can I offer your travel products directly on my site? What if I already sell travel?
Our reservations system uses a robust API and a totally customizable user interface to provide a branded or white-labeled solution for affiliates. As such, affiliates wishing to offer products directly have three options:
1) White-Labeled Local Reservations Platform (WordPress Only)
2) API Integration into an Existing System (API Develop Required)
3) Hosted Solution – reservations page hosted off-site, but ‘skinning’ and customization available for easy white-labeleing.
I don’t want to offer travel directly on my site, I’d rather just send my visitors to you in exchange for commissions on a complete booking.
Cool! Let’s do it! We can track referrals from your site using coupon codes and analytics software. If your website is closely aligned with our target audience, we may even consider a PPC solution!
Do you have options for affiliates looking to connect through a 3rd party affiliate platform?
Absolutely. We work with the folks at AvantLink to connect with over 50,000 screened, high-quality affiliates. Most are closely aligned with our target market in the outdoor and action sports industry. Feel free to become involved in this platform to offer our products and services. We’re happy to work with qualified sites directly, though.
